I could show you photo after photo of the flowers my mother has raised over the years, and tell you story after story of the gardens she and dad used to have, but these sunflower shots best illustrate her “green thumb”.
First, check out the crop she had back in ’95, then a shot from last year, and finally this year’s beauty.
Interestingly enough, she does nothing but plant the seed (seed from the same plant line) and things seem to happen. These two shots of the full plants were in different soils some 20 miles apart. Must just be her thumb!
It just occurred to me, that’s the same thumb she kept pressed against my head all those years, and yes, I grew big too!
Side note: That t-shirt is from the last time I was in Alaska back in '95!
